Material Beliefs (Interaction research Studio, Department of Design at Goldsmiths, University of London) biomedical, cybernetic, public space, body, Goldsmiths
Material Beliefs takes emerging biomedical and cybernetic technology out of labs and into public spaces. The project focuses on technologies which blur the boundaries between our bodies and materials, and how design as a tool for public engagement can be used to stimulate discussion about the value of these forms of hybridity
Missmoun Mouna Andraos wearables, electronics, mobile, web, varius media, interaction designer, art, electronic, intimacy
Mouna Andraos an R&D OpenLab Fellow, is an interaction designer in various media including web, mobile, electronics and wearables, while applying ideas of softness, intimacy and uniqueness to the electronic spaces and objects that are increasingly inhabiting our personal environments. Her work for a Montreal-based interactive production studio has won recognition ranging from a Best of Show & Best of Art at the South by South West web awards to a cyberLion in Cannes.

Responsive Textiles Michel Guglielmi, Hanne Louise Johannesen (Diffus Studio) 2006-2008 fabrics, LED, Electroluminescent, thermochromic ink, light, textile
We are experimenting with responsive textiles, that means textiles which have the ability to change qualities (patterns, colour, structure...) as a result of a given interaction with the physical environment, the user(s) or as a result of the of an interaction with more abstract datas.
Studio subTela Barbara Layne (Hexagram Institute) institute, research, visual art, engineering, intelligent clothing, smart fabrics
Barbara Layne is the Director of Studio subTela at the Hexagram Institute where she works with a team of graduate students from Visual Arts and Engineering at Concordia University and a variety of international collaborators. The Studio is focused on the development of intelligent cloth structures for the creation of artistic, performative and functional textiles. Natural materials are woven in alongside microcomputers and sensors to create surfaces that are receptive and responsive to external stimuli. Controllable arrays of Light Emitting Diodes present changing patterns and texts through the structure of cloth. Wireless transmission systems have also been developed to support real time communication. In both wearable systems and site related installations, textiles are used to address the social dynamic of fabric and human interaction.
StudioLab Aadjan van der Helm (TU Delft) aesthetic appeal, product experience, intelligence in products, inspiration engineering, emotional design, design for the senses, industrial design, students, research, group of designer, TU Delft, ergonomics-driven, technology-driven, working prototypes
The Studio lab aims at integrating multidisciplinary knowledge on user, technology, and the product usage context. Building working prototypes that are rich in experiential quality and design tools is essential to the research approach. Prototypes with design variables are tested in real environments, in an iterative research through design cycle. Results from user experience testing leads to design knowledge and refinement of research issues.
Transmaterial Blain Brownell, Transtudio resource, book, website
As the speed of technological progress continues to accelerate, innovation threatens to outpace architects' and designers' working knowledge of materials thereby limiting their applicability. In order to stay at the cutting edge of design, a knowledge of the uses, properties, and sources of new materials is essential. A companion to the Transmaterial books written by Blaine Brownell and published by Princeton Architectural Press, Transmaterial online is intended to be a clear, concise, accessible, and carefully edited resource that provides information about the latest and most intriguing materials commercially available.

XS labs Joanna Berzowska (XS labs) lab, innovation, electronic textiles, reactive garments, interactions, design research studio, complex textile-based surfaces, transitive properties
Joanna Berzowska's XS Labs is a design research studio with a focus on innovation in the fields of electronic textiles and reactive garments: "second skins" that can enable computationally-mediated interactions with the environment and the individual. We are equally inspired by the technical and cultural history of how textiles have been made for generations (weaving, stitching, embroidery, knitting, beading, quilting) and by new and emerging materials with different electro-mechanical properties. This enables us to construct complex textile-based surfaces, substrates, and structures with "transitive" properties.
